CBS- “Queen Latifah as Robyn in ‘The Equalizer’

The Equalizer is one of my favorite action television shows. I love a show with strong female leads; The Equalizer has several. “Queen Latifah as Robyn in ‘The Equalizer’ is indeed an amazing show to watch. Co-created by executive producers Michael Sloan, Richard Lindheim, and Queen Latifah, the show revolves around the life of Robyn, a former CIA operative. Living with her Aunt Viola, Robyn is raising her daughter Delilah as a single mother. However, unknown to everyone, Robyn leads a dual life where she works undercover and protects the lives of people who cannot trust anyone else.Readers Fusion
